Sykkuno Sighs about Unstable Twitch Income — Says He Is Not Poor
Popular Twitch streamer, Sykkuno revealed his earnings have dropped; however, the online gamer does not think he's poor.
Talking on his October 2 stream, Sykkuno offered his example and called online streaming a "difficult" job. He further revealed how he is making ten times less than his previous Twitch income.
He also stated his current income from YouTube to be just ten percent of what he was earning during his Among Us days. To give it a perspective, Sykkuno's Among Us days are considered his heydays.
He also debunked the general idea that streamers make a lot of money by citing his twitch income levels. As per Sykkuno, he "don't think I'm poor but it's super unstable how much you make."
While he did not talk about his monthly income or net worth, Sykkuno further shared streamers, in general, aren't poor but cited that the unstable nature of the job makes streaming difficult.
Who Is Sykkuno?
Born on June 4, 1992, Sykkuno is a native of San Gabriel, California. His first name is understood to be Thomas; however, there is no reliable information regarding his last name.

Originally his YouTube channel was named "Sykku," however, in 2012, the YouTuber decided to start a new gaming channel with the name "Sykkuno," which now is widely known to be his first channel.
Talking in one of his recent streams, Sykkuno revealed the meaning behind his name. As per the gamer, there is no special meaning of his name and wished "I had like some cool story. Or maybe it meant something."

In December 2020, entertainment web magazine Dexerto reported Sykkuno to be the fastest-growing Twitch streamer of that time, who gained over 620,000 followers in just 30 days.
A major part of that mercurial growth was down to his success with the popular online social deduction game, Among Us.
